Yesterday a MPOB officer had a nice talk....
..while attending a Hap Seng, Biofuel seminar.|
ho ho ho
Apparently, Malayan political leadership didn't pay close attention to our talk about most productive bio fuel being ethanol...
and use the most efficient fats, the palm oleic for bio diesel use.
Apparently Petronas build a 1 M Tonnes Methanol plant in Sabah. Meaning we can produce 7-8 m T of methy esters or enough to make 35 to 40 MT of B-5 biodisel. Golden Hope, Guthrie (now Sime Darby) build 700,000 tonnes capacity, while other built another 600,000 tonnes.
(other companies did not go ahead with their plans)............just as European Union "sabotage Malayan and Indonesian plans" to favour Rapeseed Bio fuel!
Now, Malaya is stuck with overcapacity in methanol, methy esters (like Singapore's Wilmar biodiesel plant with 500,000 tonnes capacity).
B-5 diesel will be in the market in INdonesia by January 2009 and in Malaya by March 2009?
As Palm Oleic from fruit bunch has only 4 months useable storage time, excess unsold, aged palm oleic can be used, just like what China is doing with the corn or grain aged cereals into ethanol. NO WASTE.....that's the point.
but, but....probably have to sell at lower price than palm olein to states like Korea, Japan and China now!
